Mosaic Monday: Lupins

2010 06 Lupines collage

These are not “native” flowers in Sweden but by now widely spread. I remember them from my early childhood (and onwards) growing along the railway running by my grandparents’ house; but in many other places too, around Midsummer.

For more Monday Mosaics, visit Mary’s Little Red House.

These are great pictures. I have been trying to identify some flowers like this, only orange, these may be the ones! I have not posted them yet till I find out what they are.

DawnTreader said...

I've only seen them in colours ranging from white to purple but perhaps there are hybrids in other colours too.

I know you get tired of my one word that I love, but I have to say it on this moasiac WOW! WOW! they are just to gorgeous for words, and yet another flower I have heard of in books but never seen.

I'm in Texas and we have a special love for Lupins - but we call them Bluebonnets - they (the blue variety) are our state flower and we they are very special to us all here. They are just so gorgeous - in every color!!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
